Well hello again!!!

Oh my, January…. how you've flown. Let me tell you, this moving saps your energy and life force--- oh yeah it does! Even when you do TONS of unpacking before the move date, hang up your crap, light your candles and try your very best to make your house a home, there are some things you just can't do yourself…. like make HOT WATER flow through your taps (and put in a furnace), fix this slow internet, install a gas line for your stove and detach your three year old who is now clinging to you for dear life, sneaking into your bed at night and panicking when you leave the room. Yes friends, it's been a treat. 

But focus on the happy we shall and here's what's been happy around here

My birthday was the day after the move and I was so, so tired that I postponed gift shopping in lieu of a nap (I never do that, I was totally beat). I also kept my promise not to unpack a single thing the day of my birthday.  I did manage to sneak in a blow out and Sephora birthday freebie in. My mom and my brother and his fam were also around to celebrate with us and help with all the stuff going on that weekend. The whole family went out to lunch, Darin took me out to dinner and there was cake for all at the end…. All in all a lovely day.

 Yeah, there's a knife on the table and three kids. Such diligent grown ups around.

All titles I cherish most in my life (my sister in law also gave me a beautiful card which arrived later on)

It was great having my mom around for a few days as well. I enjoyed her company and all the help. We also headed to Toronto to celebrate my brother's birthday with him a few days later and my sister in law cooked up a storm and sent us home with lots of leftovers (we still don't have a stove)

No hot water= bumming dinner and showers off your friends. Lots of playtime for the kiddos.

Skiing is so much fun for this little one!
And although I've been very good this week about keeping my sugar tooth in check-- weekends are totally about treats- no? (only one of these is mine but I might have sampled the rest also)
Have a wonderful week friends. I have high hopes that mine will include a few more boxes unpacked, hot water and a stove!
